The interior of the Camaro ZL1 comes with comfort features like Recaro performance heated and ventilated power adjustable seats with Alcantara-leather upholstery in Black. For 2021 the interior gets wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto added to the list. The exterior sees the addition of Wild Cherry pait.
